Issues and Answers

Issue

Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

Cam-Pain Anger Management?

Issue

Winner Ted Cruz is continually being attacked by sore loser Donald Trump. Their so called b-romance is quickly evolving into a brawl and its about to intensify. What neither one of these knuckleheads realize is that it's Marco Rubio, who may be the one declaring victory.

We also wonder how The Donald will react if he realizes that he was trumped by Latinos?

WATER EVERYWHERE?

Issue

But is clean water as available as we may think? Every day we hear stories about water and rarely pay attention because we assume there's plenty of it to go around.

I am fortunate because I live on an island in New York City, where drinking water is world-renowned for its quality. Each and every day, more than 1 billion gallons of fresh, clean water are delivered from large upstate reservoirs as far as 125 miles from NYC to the taps of nine million thirsty neighbors throughout New York.

Divided We Fall

Issue

It has been reported that some are warning more dominos will fall after the UK vote to leave EU. Will they include the OAS, UN, NATO, USA?

Why are exclusion peddlers and haters delighted with headlines of a DIVIDED KINGDOM and DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA?

GRIDLOCKEDUSA

Issue

Its not just Congress that is caught in DC gridlock, but local commuters now share a similar pain.
Where ido you suppose s the worst rush hour congestion in the entire country? The answer is in our nation's capital Washington, D.C., beat out commuting misery for LA, San Francisco and NYC with the dubious honor of worst rush hour congestion in the nation, according to TTI.

BILL THE WALL TO US?

Issue

Tweeting that the dishonest media does not report any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later, but not offering any proof or details on how he will accomplish it. Some may wonder who is really being dishonest?

It appears that it is much easier to make statements one day and then different the next day. The Donald has said that he knows more than others and points fingers but it is more difficult to explain in detail the specifics than to make general comments like -Lock Her Up, Repeal and Replace Mexico Will Pay for The Wall and so many others, but never following up with specific facts, or data.

Brotherly Love?

Attraction

According to recently released research findings, some women look for men who remind them of their brothers. As creepy as this may sound, the Northumbria University study found that some were attracted to their siblings.

These findings weren't true of every woman but some partners did show a resemblance to the women's brothers.

GUN Control

Issue

The Second Amendment to the US Constitution concerns the right to bear arms, and has always been a hot-button issue, especially during election season. Gun rights and gun control groups alike have been lobbying Congress for decades to craft legislation in their respective favors. Some say gun control is about how steady one holds their firearm, others say its about limiting access to deadly weapons. What say you?

Broken and needs US to fix it

Issue

US Congress, used to be the place where statesmen and political theorists would roam the halls and work together. Leaders like James Madison, the fourth President of the United States of America, or John Adams the second President of the United States, who served earlier as the first vice president of the United States, or GOP Superstar Abraham Lincoln, the 16th US President who served until his assassination, and so many other real leaders who served US well. These politicians not only persevered, but also developed a stronger and much prouder nation.

After watching the last two congressional sessions, it leaves me thinking that the system has broken down and it desperately needs fixing. These women and men who were elected to serve US are fighting like they're in the worst divorce anyone has ever seen. The political pettiness and small-minded meanness in national discourse is disheartening at best and works against our national interests at worst.

Congress is charged with drafting, debating and sending bills to the president to be signed into law. But how do USA's 100 senators and 435 representatives from 50 states manage their legislative business? They have not been doing a good job.

An effective method to measure their effectiveness is to ask whether US lawmakers deliberate on the most important issues of the day and make a decision to move on to the next pressing issue. By this standard alone, Congress has grown dysfunctional.

Please, reach out to your representative and tell them what you expect of them, or else you will see to it that they are replaced. These new breed of leaders need marriage counselors, or strict chaperones. What say you?

FAMILY VALUES

Idea

The Olympics has once again shown the world that we are a global family with inherent values. There is not need to cheat just to win medals. If we have learned one thing for sure, its that oping is for dopes.

COMPASSION FOR ALL INTERACTIONS WITH AND AMONG EVERYONE SHOULD BE BASED ON OUR CONTINUOUSLY RENEWED CAPACITY TO BE OPEN TO THE FULL RANGE OF INDIVIDUAL NEEDS, CIRCUMSTANCES, AND POTENTIAL.

DIGNITY FOR EACH PERSON'S RIGHTS AND SPIRITUAL PREFERENCES ARE TREATED WITH RESPECT, HONOR, AND FAIRNESS.
